Let's repeal the right to vote.

First, they whine about being compared to segregationists. Then, they try to amend the state constitution to re-establish the poll tax:

Georgia voters might get to decide whether the state's photo identification law should become a part of the state Constitution.

State Sen. Cecil Staton (R-Macon) filed a proposed Constitutional amendment this afternoon, seeking to shield the voter photo ID law from judges who have said it is unconstitutional.

Voters would be asked if state lawmakers should be given the power to draft "procedures to verify the identity of electors seeking to vote in a primary or election."

In filing the legislation, Staton warned of "frequent identity theft and even evidence of illegal aliens being registered to vote."

Maybe this time, Stanton et. al. will share that evidence with the rest of us.
